It is a perfect place to rest, relax and replenish your energy. A true source of energy with an incredible backdrop. Near the waterfall there is also the Grotto Froda, a traditional Ticino Grotto. Another impressive waterfall is the Cascata del Salto in Maggia. This wide waterfall is 60 metres high and ends in a large pool that is great for a refreshing swim. Only two bus stops further down the road lies Giumaglio, where there is a beautiful hidden waterfall with a large pool. In Riveo, not one but two magnificent waterfalls await you. The Soladino waterfall emerges from two caves at different altitudes, the Sponde waterfall descends towards the valley in three layers, feeding a little lake at the bottom. The Cascata della Crosa, with its 129 meters, is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the valley. But like all treasures, to get there you have to work hard, the waterfall is a 90-minute hike away from Piano di Peccia (T2 mountain hike).
Before you reach the well-hidden waterfall, you can rest and take a refreshing dip in a wonderful “pozzo” (natural pool) along the way. At the very end of the Verzasca Valley, behind the village of Sonogno, you will find the Cascata Froda di Sonogno. A well-prepared footpath will take you there in around 25 minutes. On your way back, consider visiting the nearby Grotto Efra for some delectable Ticino treats.
It is nestled into the forest a little beneath street level, which makes it easy to miss. Nimble-footed hikers can stop for a refreshing dip into the little pool at the bottom of the waterfall.
